Cuisine: World
  • Bajra Flour/Pearl Millet Flour - 1 cup
  • Almonds - ¼ cup
  • Baking Powder- ¼ tsp
  • Palm sugar/ Brown Sugar - ½ cup
  • Cardamom powder or Vanilla Essence - ½ tsp
  • Butter - ½ cup or 1 butter stick or 113 gms
  • Boiled Milk - 2 tbsp (optional)
  • Salt -a tiny pinch
  • Almonds/Cashews - 8 for garnishing
  1. Measure and keep all ingredients ready. Also preheat the oven to 180 deg C  for 10 minutes. Take ¼ cup of almonds in a blender and grind it to a slightly coarse or fine powder. In a mixing bowl, take the grounded almonds flour and add 1 cup of bajra flour, salt and baking powder to it. Mix well.
  2. Then take the butter in a vessel. Let it come to a room temperature. Then add brown sugar to it. if using palm sugar grind it to a fine powder and add here. Mix well until the sugar is completely melted.
  3. Add this butter sugar mix along with vanilla essence or cardamom powder to the dry ingredients and start to mix  the dough with your hands gently until you get the soft dough consistency. Add 1 to 2 tbsp of milk if required, I have not added any milk as the dough was soft with butter.
  4. Once the soft dough consistency is reached, keep the cookie dough in refrigerator for 20 mins. In the meantime, line the cookie tray with a cookie sheet/parchment paper. After 20 mins, take the cookie dough from the refrigerator and start making balls and flatten it using your palms. Arrange the cookies, garnish with sliced almonds/cashews and bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes (baking time depends on the size of the cookies and oven)  at 180° C till cookies are browned at the bottom. Allow to cool in tray completely and serve the cookies.
